Berlin lies in the lowlands of Germany, which will be inundated within two years following the pole shift due to the melting of the existing poles which will raise the sea level above its current level by 650-700 feet. During the shift itself, water rushing into the Baltic Sea during the sloshing of the Atlantic, and slow to drain back out due to the relatively narrow straits, will cause flooding of any lowlands along the Baltic Sea. Berlin will find a flood tide rolling in, and stagnant for days. The effect of putting cities not used to flooding nor designed for this under water for long periods is that soil melts under foundations and building otherwise sound suddenly slide when underwater mudslides take place. No roof can thus be considered safe or secure, and boats and rescue should be part of the plan for those resigned to ride out the shift in Berlin.
